Patient :I jammed my thumb Sunday afternoon playing basketball. When the injury occurred, I heard a cracking type noise. I do know it was not a popping noise. It immediately swelled and turned bluish around my joints and ligaments. Yesterday, my gym teacher made me participate in wiffleball even though I told him my thumb was injured. I ended up hitting my thumb again and it start swelling again and turning even more blue. My body is telling me something is up and my mom won't listen to me. Can you help me out?
